About JERICHO YOUTH SERVICES

Jericho Youth Services has been providing recreational programming for the children and youth in the Town of Georgina since 1982, currently serving over 2,000 individual participants in a variety of locations throughout our rural community of 44,000 residents.  Although it started as a church group, Jericho has no religious affiliation.  Due to the socio-economic situation of our community, all our programs are open to everyone free of charge, except for Summer and PA Day Camps, which are offered at a lower price than any other day camps in the Region.  Jericho Youth Services has become an expert in delivering After School Programs and is currently running five successful 5 days/week After School Programs which include Homework Help, Arts & Crafts, Physical Literacy, Healthy snacks and Nutrition and much more.   Please help support our programs by making a donation.
